For your organisation

With your own exclusively branded portal on the SportTutor platform - you have all the tools at your fingertips to deliver effective learning experiences to build your people capability.

Many organisations use face-to-face workshops, an approach that can prove to be expensive for both organisation and participant. Workshops have a finite number of participants, the timing or location may not be practical for everyone, and unexpected changes in personal circumstances can force a participant to pull out at the last minute.

By blending the learning delivery methods to suit the topic and individual learning needs in SportTutor, you can make your resources more engaging - and go further.

SportTutor can grow your people capability by reaching more people, more of the time, with more effective engagement.

Sport volunteers are amazing passionate people and many get involved to help, so sport can happen in their communities. Issues such as being time poor, travel distances, lack of opportunity and intimidating group workshops often create barriers to personal development.

SportTutor offers a variety of ways to engage your members, volunteers and staff in learning experiences.

SportTutor enables your people to complete or go back and revisit training material on the train while they travel to work, or while waiting for their kids to finish swim class, or perhaps in the evening after they've got baby settled for the night?

SportTutor provides an accessible and user friendly personal learning space, where your people control their own learning and development.

Maintaining an up-to-date database can be a challenge and manually tracking the types and levels of qualification of your members can be time consuming. Your members, volunteers and staff's learning activity is automatically tracked. This is great for keeping records, provides insight into professional development pathways, monitors gaps in learning needs and can promote new learning directly to relevant uses.

SportTutor makes for efficient automated administration that tracks learning activity and success levels of your people.

It gives your members, staff and volunteers easy access not only to your own learning resources, but also to Sport NZ resources that are open and freely available to everyone signed-up on the SportTutor platform.

SportTutor adds value for your people, by providing development under your own brand and allowing access to Sport NZ resources to reduce unnecessary duplication.
